So I had a persuasion speech I had to give in front of my college "argument and persuasion" class, having only 6-10 minutes to make a point. All of our speeches up to today had been unsuccessful at persuading anyone to change (many did the war in Iraq- as if you can change someone's viewpoint on that issue in 6 minutes!). After the speeches, everyone does a quick answer on whether or not they were persuaded. So, I did my presentation on...yup...why Widescreen is better than "Foolscreen". I did a video side-by-side analysis of two movies running at different formats, explained what fullscreen does to movies, etc. I rehearsed the speech so much before then that I didnt need any notes to read off of- it was just me and the audience. Many beforehand did not know the difference between wide and full. By the end of my speech, every single member of the class had agreed that fullscreen was bad, and will in the future buy only widescreen (or invest in a DVD player instead of VHS fullscreen movies). Almost everyone didnt know beforehand what wide vs full meant, and that there was such a big difference between the two. Its nice to know I made a difference Im so happy! Woo!
